Today has been a crazy-busy day. A wonderful day, but absolutely exhausting. Just the thought of writing a blog post is almost more than my poor body and brain can handle.

So I am not going to write much today. Instead I give you this Scripture:

And you, my little son,
will be called the prophet of the Most High,
because you will prepare the way for the Lord.
You will tell his people how to find salvation
through forgiveness of their sins.
Because of God’s tender mercy,
the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
and to guide us to the path of peace.

Luke 1:76-79

This is part of Zechariah’s song of praise on the occasion of the birth of his son, John (the one who would be come known as John the Baptist, who would prepare the way for Jesus’ ministry).

And this picture:

And this reminder:

That God is the one who shows tender mercy to us. Even now, the morning light of heaven is breaking upon you, giving light to those who have been in darkness and guiding us to path of peace. Praise God!
